Superintendent Danny Adkins announces all Floyd County elementary schools have been awarded funding for the 2019-2020 school year from the Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program.


Adkins says, “For the first time in several years, all elementary schools in our district are receiving funding to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to our KIDS! This $197,850.00 grant funding is divided among our 7 elementary schools based on student population.” Adkins continues, “In addition to the kids regularly getting fresh fruits and vegetables, there’s a couple other great benefits from this grant. First, it allows kids the opportunity to try different fruits and vegetables they may not try otherwise. Second, this program can improve kids’ healthy eating habits for their entire lives and that can make a huge difference in their future health.”


Superintendent Adkins concludes saying, “We’re happy we can offer fresh fruits and vegetables regularly and we’re thrilled to continue our CEO program where all kids can eat breakfast and lunch every day with no cost to our families. We’re happy that our Lunch, Literacy and Learning program this summer served over 14,000 meals to children at no cost to their families. Why is all this important to us? Because we want to provide amazing opportunities for students and that includes the opportunity to be as healthy as possible.”
